During National Reconciliation Week all of our children were lucky enough to attend “You and Me, Murrawee” at the Royal Botanical Gardens. This program gives the children a greater understanding and respect for Aboriginal culture, in particular the local Kulin Nation. Through the story-book by Kerri Hashmi, students explore indigenous plants in the Children’s Garden, collecting plant treasures and using Aboriginal tools. Experiences included grinding and painting with ochre, meeting Waa (the Raven) and making a ‘belonging’ handprint to take home.
